The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) is a regional public transit authority serving the city and county of Philadelphia, Delaware County, Montgomery County, Bucks County, and Chester County. SEPTA operates bus, subway and elevated rail, regional commuter rail, and light rail service

SEPTA also manages Shared-Ride, a door-to-door community bus type service in Philadelphia, and ADA paratransit services across the region. These services are operated by carrier contractors.

History

SEPTA acquired the Philadelphia Transportation Company (PTC) on September 30, 1968, which included bus, trolley, and trackless trolley routes, and the Market-Frankford Line and the Broad Street Line in the City of Philadelphia. This became the City Transit Division.

On January 30, 1970, SEPTA acquired the Philadelphia Suburban Transportation Company, also known as the Red Arrow Lines, which included the Philadelphia and Western Railroad (P&W) route now called the Norristown High Speed Line (Route 100), the Media and Sharon Hill Lines (Routes 101 and 102), and several suburban bus routes in Delaware County. Today, this is the Victory Division, though it is sometimes referred to as the Red Arrow Division.

In 1976, SEPTA acquired the Schuylkill Valley Lines, which is today the Frontier Division.
